There is one fact that currently has no explanation, but it is worth
mentioning in documentation.

Till v.6.5 InterBase was sending VARCHAR columns padded to the full
length with spaces (0x20) similar to CHAR. In 6.5 this was fixed and
promoted by Borland as an improvement (and not bug fix). IB 6.0 and
FB 1.0 pads VARCHARs too. However, if FB 1.0 is accessed via JayBird,
it does _not_ pad VARCHARs and sends them correctly.
